Liverpool defender Conor Bradley hails praise for Alexis Mac Allister after the star midfielder’s remarkable performance in the Brighton clash

Conor Bradley has hailed Liverpool star midfielder Alexis Mac Allister as an “unbelievable footballer” following the Argentine’s man-of-the-match performance in Liverpool’s 2-1 victory against old club Brighton & Hove Albion.

Bradley, a 20-year-old who just made his seventh Premier League start for the Reds on Sunday, goes full out to appreciate the ex-Brighton midfielder as he pulls apart his former club in the Premier League clash.

Mac Allister dictated the game with a record-breaking nine passes inside the penalty area, creating a match-best five chances, including the crucial assist for Mo Salah’s second-half winner.

After the match, Bradley showed no hesitation in appreciating the star midfielder. He said:

“He’s just an unbelievable footballer, I’ve never seen someone retain the ball so well. He’s so calm on the ball and he’s so composed. He’s just a wonderful footballer and he’s a joy to play with. I can’t praise him enough, to be honest.”

The constant outstanding performances by the star midfielder also caught the eye of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp. Last week, the German called the former Brighton player a “difference-maker” and a “rhythm giver.”

Liverpool has no shortage of stars

Bradley himself has drawn attention for his strong performances on the side since his debut in January. The Northern Irishman scored his first international goal recently, capping off what he described as “a mental couple of months.”

In Trent Alexander-Arnold’s absence, Bradley has provided ideal cover at right back, though he faced a tough test on Sunday against Brighton during the constant involvement of duels with tricky winger Simon Adingra.

After the second-minute goal by the Seagulls, the wonderful performances of Bradley and Quansah did great to limit the chances of any more threats by the rivals. It’s players like these who truly represent Liverpool’s foundation and what the club is all about.
